Our health initiatives encourage personal fitness and healthy life styles. We will support organizations which advance access to treatment and coordinate awareness and advocacy campaigns to reduce health disparities, save lives and impact health related legislation. Co-sponsored health forums will address: diseases which disproportionately affect women and minorities, prevention and treatment options.
We’re Celebrating Earth Day in April!
In honor of Earth Day, April 22, 2014, we want to focus on providing information on being a better environmental steward this month.
One of the key initiatives under our Health Target is Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability. So, we have committed to ‘going green’ in our organization and spreading the word about its importance.
April is also Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, meaning that symptoms continue and worsen over time. Nearly one million people in the US are living with Parkinson’s disease. The cause is unknown, and although there is presently no cure, there are treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage its symptoms.
